Thursday is "This Old House Day"
This unassuming home at 40 Grandview Ave. was the scene of a wedding in 1913. Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, who directed the U.S. Naval operations in the Pacific after Japan's sneak attack at Pearl Harbor, married a Quincy girl named Catherine Vance Freeman, who lived here with her family. The couple apparently met while Nimitz was in Quincy waiting for his submarine to be outfitted at Fore River Shipyard.
